  • Hometown: Calgary, Alberta
  • Year of Diagnosis: 2012
  • Diagnosis: Medulloblastoma

What I want people to know about me: I love Star Wars!

What do you want to be when you grow up: A race car driver and a veterinarian

Some interesting facts about my treatment: I spent over 75 nights in the hospital in the first 6 months after I was diagnosed. I underwent 6 surgeries, 6 cycles of chemotherapy, 3 stem cell transplants and 6 weeks of daily radiation treatments. At 4 ½ years old, I was the youngest child to do daily radiation treatments without sedation.

Our Featured Ambassador

This is Josh Nelson – a childhood cancer survivor. He knows about facing all the challenges of childhood cancer:

“I know first-hand how it feels to be a prisoner in the hospital and endure the surgeries and the endless needles and treatments. I know how it feels to lose my hair, throw up regularly and watch other kids around me earn their wings. I lost a part of my childhood that I will never get back. I know how it feels to look different and to be different. That’s something that I wouldn’t wish for any other kid to go through, and that is why I do what I do.”
